How significant is Yemen?
Well I read then title and thought this would be something good... focusing on the areas the media leaves ignored like the recent spat of Greek letter
bombs, with the most recent exploding in the Russian/Swiss embassies in Greece, or the recent spat of letter bombs aimed at European leaders like the
German Chancellor and the French President.
There is certainly an undercurrent running through Europe that the media is trying to play down while hyping up the AQ threat, in fact it appears the
media is trying to hype up all the imagined threats possible while ignoring the real ones..
A failed underwear bomber burning his nadgers is more interesting to the media than a bomb exploding in an embassy in retaliation for the recent round
of cuts, kinda leaves me feeling rather puzzled as to what is really happening.
Now my opinion is that given that we are at the start of the real pain of paying down the debt we are all in, and if this is the type of action
already being taken by some, then what will happen in 6 or 12 months time as the pain is felt more across society as a whole, and how far will the
current bombing campaigns really go.
And since this type of action spreads like a contagion, I worry more about where that is going than about Yemen, Iran or North Korea.
